    Description

      The new ZigguratSampler.NormalizedGaussian does not produce suitable output from the examples sampling application:

      Compare with the current ZigguratNormalizedGaussianSampler:

      This is is repeatable with several different RNG implementations.

      This issue was not detected with the current test suite in the sampling module which uses the deciles of the distribution. The deciles may be too coarse grained to detect a problem around the distribution mean.
